25 years!? damn, pretty soon I'll be a doddering old hippy talking about "back in 83, I use to walk 5 miles in the snow to go to a one room schoolhouse!" not really, but check this out...

Greek Theatre was always a fantastic place to see the Dead...the 1978 shows are legendary...the Greek runs of the 80s were always some of the better shows of the year...

What we have with 05-15-1983 is an average first set and a great second set...Help Slip Frank may be the best one of the year...Samson smokes...He's Gone settles into it's loping groove...after Airto Moreira and his wife do their thing in drums, space, the boys serve up a decent Truckin that goes into my personal favorite Stella Blue of all time...

Good call Strat. I was going to mention yesterday's day in history with the Shakedown Playin>China doll second set opener. Might as well check out the whole run.
